Even with Season 7 of Game of Thrones wrapping up over the summer, things are still pretty eventful in the lives of the GoT cast. Actors Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) have both gotten engaged in recent months, and with today's good news, it would seem that good fortunes are running high among the cast members: actor Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) recently welcomed his second child with wife Erica Schmidt, and we can now officially confirm it.

According to Us Weekly, an exclusive source was the only person able to confirm that Schmidt had indeed given birth. She and Dinklage, however, have not released any official statement at this time, and the source didn't reveal the baby's name or sex. Despite the mystery surrounding the announcement, this is, without a doubt, some seriously happy news!

The couple are already parents to a daughter born in 2011. Us Weekly's report indicates that although we are just learning about the birth of their second child, there's a chance that Schmidt gave birth sometime in late August or September, as the couple were spotted out at a concert with their newborn.

The couple have been together for more than a decade, having eloped in 2005. Incredibly supportive of her husband's work, Schmidt received a shout-out from Dinklage when he won the Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series: "I love you, Erica. You’re amazing," he said as he accepted the award.

Congratulations are certainly in order for this happy family!
